Editorial Reviews

Review

  • "A master class in all the ways women are writing--and have written--some of the best science fiction available." -NPR, Named One of NPR's Best Books of 2014
  • "Part of what makes this issue such a delight [is] the range and diversity of what falls under the heading of 'science fiction,' all of it written by women. From each piece to the next, the essays and the stories alike, there are shifts. These stories are united by genre and their expansion of what it mean to be in that genre, and they do not echo each other. Each has unique touches, angles, and interests; if nothing else, it's great work to have collected them all together under one aegis to explore what it means to say that women don't write sf and how frankly absurd that is. But more than that, too, because these stories are so very good." -Tor.com
  • "Gather[s] together some of the strongest voices in science fiction. ... Filled with beautifully crafted science fiction stories, original artwork, and interviews. ... Beautiful and thought-provoking." -FangirlNation

Book Description

LIGHTSPEED is an online science fiction and fantasy magazine. In its pages, you will find science fiction: from near-future, sociological soft SF, to far-future, star-spanning hard SF—and fantasy: from epic fantasy, sword-and-sorcery, and contemporary urban tales, to magical realism, science-fantasy, and folktales.

This month, we present our special anniversary issue, Women Destroy Science Fiction!, an all-science fiction extravaganza entirely written—and edited!—by women.

Guest-edited by long-time LIGHTSPEED assistant editor Christie Yant, our Women Destroy Science Fiction! Issue contains eleven all-new, original science fiction short stories, plus four short story reprints, a novella reprint, and for the first time ever, an array of fifteen flash fiction stories. In addition to all that goodness, we also have more than two dozen personal essays by women talking about their experiences reading and writing science fiction, plus seven in-depth nonfiction articles.

Here’s what we’ve got lined up for you in this special issue:

Original science fiction by Seanan McGuire, N.K. Jemisin, Charlie Jane Anders, Maria Dahvana Headley, Amal El-Mohtar, Kris Millering, Heather Clitheroe, Rhonda Eikamp, Gabriella Stalker, Elizabeth Porter Birdsall, and K.C. Norton.

Original flash fiction by Carrie Vaughn, Ellen Denham, Samantha Murray, Holly Schofield, Cathy Humble, Emily Fox, Tina Connolly, Effie Seiberg, Marina J. Lostetter, Rhiannon Rasmussen, Sarah Pinsker, Kim Winternheimer, Anaid Perez, Katherine Crighton, and Vanessa Torline.

Reprints by Alice Sheldon (a/k/a James Tiptree, Jr.), Eleanor Arnason, Maria Romasco Moore, Tananarive Due, and a novella reprint by Maureen F. McHugh.

Nonfiction articles by Pat Murphy, Stina Leicht, Tracie Welser, plus a roundtable interview by Mary Robinette Kowal with Ursula K. Le Guin, Pat Cadigan, Ellen Datlow, and Nancy Kress, and a feature interview with comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick by Jennifer Willis. Our cover for this issue is brand-new art from Galen Dara, who also conducted our artist showcase interview this month.

Personal Essays by Seanan McGuire, E. Catherine Tobler, Brooke Bolander, Marissa Lingen, Sylvia Spruck Wrigley, O.J. Cade, Anne Charnock, Cheryl Morgan, Pat Murphy, Sheila Finch, Kat Howard, Amy Sterling Casil, Nancy Jane Moore, Liz Argall, Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam, Anaea Lay, Helena Bell, Stina Leicht, Jude Griffin, Gail Marsella, DeAnna Knippling, Georgina Kamsika, Sandra Wickham, Kristi Charish, Rachel Swirsky, Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff, Juliette Wade, and Kameron Hurley.
